Education

Design Minds exists to engage with the community and enable access to design thinking resources in education. It is a digital space for sharing resources, articles and toolkits by partnering with real world designers, businesses and the broader community. Design Thinking is a process that builds the capabilities of creative 21st century citizens.

Our Design Thinking methodology can be used  within existing education and learning benchmarks and consists of the following phases:

INQUIRE: EXERCISES RELATED TO RESEARCH, IDENTIFYING / DEFINING A PROBLEM, DEVELOPING BACKGROUND UNDERSTANDING, AND SETTING OBJECTIVES.

IDEATE: EXERCISES RELATED TO BRAINSTORMING, GENERATING IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM, EXPERIMENTATION AND PLAY.

IMPLEMENT: EXERCISES RELATED TO TESTING DEVELOPED IDEAS, PROTOTYPING AND COMMUNICATING AN END RESULT.
